An infinitely scrolling menu with an overlapping cell animation. The menu is customizable in terms of number of cells, their images, how many cells are displayed on the screen, frame size etc.

Note: An Android Version is also available (coming soon).


You can either:

  1. Copy the the LIVCordionMenu directly into your Project
  2. Include the following cocoapod (preferred):
pod 'LIVCordionMenu'


Import the required header file:

#import <LIVCordionMenu/LIVCordionMenu.h>

//or without pod

#import "LIVCordionMenu.h"

Create the LIVCordionMenu with an array of images, labels and a frame:

NSArray* labels = @[@"cell1",@"cell2",@"cell3",@"cell4",@"cell5"];
NSArray* images =  [NSArray arrayWithObjects:
                        [UIImage imageNamed:@"cell1"],
                        [UIImage imageNamed:@"cell2"],
                        [UIImage imageNamed:@"cell3"],
                        [UIImage imageNamed:@"cell4"],
                        [UIImage imageNamed:@"cell5"],

//Frame (fill view example)
CGRect screenRect = [[UIScreen mainScreen] bounds];

float x = 0;
float y = 0;
float width = screenRect.size.width;
float height = screenRect.size.height;

CGRect menuFrame = CGRectMake(x, y, width, height);

_accordionMenu = [[LiVAccordion alloc] initMenuWithFrame:menuFrame images:images labels:labels];
_accordionMenu.delegate = self;

//Set optional properties
_accordionMenu.fontColor = [UIColor whiteColor];
_accordionMenu.font = [UIFont fontWithName:@"Helvetica" size:25];
_accordionMenu.cellDisplayFactor = 3;
_accordionMenu.snapSpeed = 4;

//Add the menu to the desired view
[_accordionMenu initInView:self.view];


Initialising the accordion menu:

At a certain point in a view:

[[LIVCordionMenu alloc] initMenuWithFrame:menuFrame images:images labels:labels];


The following delegate is available:

//User selected a cell
- (void)livAccordionMenu:(LIVCordion*)accordionMenu didSelectCell:(int)index {
    NSLog(@"Tapped Index: %d", index);
